Will Michael van Gerwen put an end to the bad streak?

It’s thursday and that means, it is time for another round of the Premier League.

Michael van Gerwen, sensationally, lost both his matches last week. After that he took a break and did not compete in Austria, so maybe he will come back with a refound top level. He will have to show that level against Daryl Gurney and Michael Smith.

Michael Smith will also meet Peter Wright. Peter Wright have to win the match, if he should have any chance to reach the top four. A defeat and Peter Wright can’t reach it.

Gary Anderson and Rob Cross can secure their place in the top four, if they win against Simon Whitlock and Raymond van Barneveld.

Second night of this weeks Premier League is upon us

Peter Wright beated Michael van Gerwen last night. Tonight MvG faces Raymond van Barneveld.

Peter Wright looks like a man back in form. Last night he beated Michael van Gerwen with the score 7-5.

Gary Anderson was also flying with not one, but two victories last night. First he almost demolished Michael Smith and then he beated Rob Cross.

Tonight Gary Anderson will face Daryl Gurney. Gary Anderson seems like the favorite in this match.

But the biggest game of the night is, without a doubt, the dutch classic between Michael van Gerwen and Raymond van Barneveld. The worlds number one rarely loose to matches in a row, so it seems like a tough night for Barney.

Sensation in German Darts Open – Max Hopp is the new champion

The unseeded Max ‘Maximiser’ Hopp is 2018 German Darts Open champion.

Almost no one would have guessed this result. An absolutely fantastic day of darts all wrapped up with a sensation of a champion.

When the day started people had Michael van Gerwen as the favourite, but sensationally lost to Ian White. His first loss in 27 matches in the European Tour.

Swedish Daniel Larsson also competed today, but unfortunately he never reached his top level against Joe Cullen and lost 6-2.

And then there was Max Hopp. No one could have written it any better. The young German won at home in Germany.

His first match of the day against Benito van de Pas was not that good. Both players had averages under 85. But Max won 6-4. The same result he got in the quarter-final against Joe Cullen.

In the semi-final he met the world champion Rob Cross and with a average at 100,23 and a 121-checkout in the decisive leg, he suddenly was in the final.

Michael Smith was up with 3-0 and 6-3, nobody figured that Max Hopp would have any chance to win the match. But suddenly he started to make high scores and Michael Smith could not hit the doubles. At position 6-6 Max had an opportunity for a 170-checkout, but he missed the bull and Michael made it 7-6.

But Max did not give up and after equalising to 7-7 he made yet another 121-checkout in the decisive leg. What a day and what a tournament for the young German.

Last day of the German Darts Open

It’s the last day of the German Darts Open and Daniel Larsson will play against Joe Cullen.

Peter Wright is out and therefor we will see a new champion of the German Darts Open. But who will it be? Can Michael van Gerwen win his third European Tour in a row?

The Dutchman will have to beat Alan Tabern here at 1pm firstly. And then we will have to see, which players he will meet later on.

Besides the Dutchman, we still have Daniel Larsson in the tournament. He got a bye yesterday, because of Simon Whitlocks withdraw. Daniel will have to play Joe Cullen today. Joe Cullen won a 6-5 match against Luke Humphries yesterday and his average was about the same as Daniel’s was against Jan Dekker in the first round.

It will be interesting to see, how far Daniel can go in the tournament. But we can also look forward to see a match between the two eliminated Premier League players, Mensur Suljovic and Gerwyn Price.

Night Ten will take off in Sheffield tonight. Last week we saw Gerwyn Price and Mensur Suljovic playing thier last matches of this year’s Premier League.

Now there are only eight players left and they will fight for the top four.

Tonight we have som great matches. The most interesting most be the scottish showdown between Gary Anderson and Peter Wright, but before that we will see Raymond van Barneveld against Daryl Gurney.

Raymond really has something to show to himself after that 7-0 defeat against Michael Smith last week.

We will also see Simon Whitlock take on Michael van Gerwen and Michael Smith against Rob Cross.

To finish of the night, we have Raymond van Barneveld playing again. He will play Peter Wright. Wright really needs some points, if he want to make into the top four. PDC have given him a great opportunity for that with two matches at the first night of the second stage.

Price and Suljovic got eliminated

The 9th round has been played, and the Premier League is two men short.

Elimination Night was played last night in Liverpool.

It was already for sure, that Gerwyn Price was eliminated, but Mensur Suljovic still had a chance.

Unfortunately, that chance was against Michael van Gerwen, who is unstoppable at the time. MvG won the match 7-4 and therefore Peter Wright could not be reached.

Despite of the good darts, the night will be remembered for something else. The big legend Eric Bristow passed away. And it was clear for everyone, that Peter Wright and Daryl Gurney had a rough time in their match, because of it.

But they managed to play the match and it all ended 6-6.

Michael van Gerwen won German Darts Grand Prix

Michael van Gerwen won once again tonight. He won 8-5 against Peter Wright.

Michael van Gerwen has now won both opening European Tour events. Beating Peter Wright in both finals.

MvG started the final well, going ahead 2-0, Peter Wright was always behind with at least one leg until he hit a fantastic 161-checkout to level the score 5-5.

With MvG stepping up his game, and Peter not finding the treble 20 consistently  the tournament ended with a 8-5 victory for Mighty Mike.

Final day of the German Darts Grand Prix

Today we will find the winner of the German Darts Grand Prix.

A couple of surprises went through yesterday, simultaneously we saw a great match between Rob Cross and Jonny Clayton with averages over 100 from both players.

Today the tournament will be decided.

It all starts with a full-English showdown as Micahel Smith will take on James Wade. After that, we will see if Max Hopp can continue winning in front of his home crowd.

We will also see players such as Joe Cullen, Peter Wright, Rob Cross, Daryl Gurney and Michael van Gerwen in action today.

If they can win their third round matches and their semifinals, we can get a repetition of the final in the European Darts Open between Peter Wright and Michael van Gerwen. That is for sure, because the draw has split the two players until the final.
